The Loose Dozen
Argyros Santorini Assyrtiko 750ml
Sourced from vineyards across Santorini, some of which are over 100 years-old, this wine itself is what this indigenous variety is all about. Minerality is at the fore, saline, with a driving citrus palate, think blossoms, lemongrass, but again the stoney soils of the island impart such an intense mineral character that everything else is relegated to a secondary character.
There is a real electricity to this wine in its steely leanness. It’s as white as the chalk caves for which the island is known.
